Get Funded! Phase Four of Scientists in Congregations

Bids open today for the innovative ‘Scientists in Congregations’ scheme. Churches across England are being invited to apply for a new round of grants to fund activities aimed at promoting a better understanding between science and faith.

Applications are being encouraged from Christian churches as part of Scientists in Congregations, a scheme aimed at inspiring discussion and learning about the relationship between faith and science.

The ecumenical project, part of the Equipping Christian Leadership in an Age of Science programme, is open to all mainstream Christian churches. These include the Church of England, the Methodist Church, the Baptist and Roman Catholic Churches, the United Reformed Church and Evangelical Alliance congregations and Pentecostal churches.

The latest round of funding comes after 32 projects in churches, dioceses and cathedrals have been funded through Scientists in Congregations for activities ranging from evensong services with a scientific theme through to public lectures and family science clubs and discussion groups. Examples of previous projects can be found here.

For this next phase of Scientists in Congregations, we are mindful of busy leaders with limited time to develop bids for more complex and longer projects. So, we are looking at awarding bids of between £1,000-5,000 for short projects or evening, day, or weekend events. We will still consider larger project bids but they are not the priority for this phase.

Closing date: 5pm, 7th January 2019
